 Find out how at Internationalist Books and Community Center on Thursday, July 31st at 7 PM, as we welcome author and activist Lyle Estill for a reading from his new book, Small Is Possible. This passionate, insightful book introduces us to "hometown security," with this chronicle of a community-powered response to resource depletion in a fickle global economy. True stories, springing from the soils of Chatham County, North Carolina, offer a positive counter balance to the bleakness of our age. This is the story of how one small southern US town found actual solutions to actual problems. Unwilling to rely on government and wary of large corporations, these residents discovered it is possible for a community to feed itself, fuel itself, heal itself and govern itself.

"Think self-reliance is far-fetched in a flat world? Lyle Estill's Small is Possible shows how it is being done for food, housing, energy, finance, health care, and just about everything else communities care about. A seasoned entrepreneur and social innovator, Estill tells fun-to-read stories that are engaging, insightful, and practical. His book is an indispensable resource for community organizers and economic developers alike."
-Michael Shuman, author of "The Small Mart Revolution: How Local Businesses are Beating the Global Competition"

Local resident Lyle Estill is the author of numerous articles, essays, and blog entries, including the book, Biodiesel Power; the Passion, People and Politics of the Next Renewable Fuel. He serves as vice-president of Piedmont Biofuels in Pittsboro, NC.
